2013 April-May The Royal Haciendas2013 April 27 - May 4. We stayed at The Royal Haciendas in Playa del Carmen, about 30 miles south of Cancun, Mexico. The area is called the Mayan Riviera. The beaches were beautiful and accommodations were luxurious. Temperatures were in the upper 70s to low 80s F with only as smattering of rain.
